About TB

TB is not racist, it is not sexist, or feminist, TB doesn’t care if you are wealthy or if you are poor it will find you and make you sick, and if left untreated it will kill you.  You can meet TB anywhere!  Help STOP TB by becoming more educated on the disease so that you will be able to spot the signs and symptoms before you have infected people and/or damaged your body.

TB kills someone approximately every 20 seconds — nearly 5,000 people every day, or 1.8 million in 2008 alone, according to the latest estimates from the World Health Organization (WHO). TB is second only to HIV as the leading infectious killer of adults worldwide. It accounts for more deaths among women than all other causes of maternal mortality combined and is the leading infectious cause of death among people with HIV/AIDS.
